This is a new idea to me. Good work! Most of the arguments against
copying have been based on the obvious divergence of the individuals.
Attacking the problem be resolving the divergence seems to be a logical

If they were later to merge, they would then be the same person. But
couldn't any seperate individuals on this list eventually merge and
become one person in some distant future? Aren't we seperate
individuals until/unless that happens?
